Thanks for this post. I tried to gently tell the debut author who sent me one of these emails why it was not a good idea, and how it could backfire. I understand the desperation authors feel wanting to publicize their book (trust me, I've been there - I have a book eligible this year, too), but emailing strangers isn't the way to do it. I'm especially grateful that the issue of posting on Facebook about nomination eligibility has been raised, and the consensus is that it's not only okay, but useful. Note: I do dislike it when an author adds me to their newsletter list, especially one with no unsubscribe button.
